For couples: no double bed - just an over-madrass connecting two single beds. Further on, the beds are ok. Varying room sizes of the superior rooms. You risk having the buzz from light car trafic right outside our window, but there are also rooms with a beautiful view towards Grunerløkka and mathallen. Both the lovely breakfast and the next door... More

A very special and different, but agreeable experience. The room smelled of forest - not the industry type, but real forrest. A huge bed, lots of plants, pine logs, sand and slate slabs in the living room area. Check the pictures

I stayed here for one night durig a business trip and was not impressed. The room was small and dark with only a small window in one corner. There was no mini bar or closet and the so called Queen size bed that I had ordered was just two single beds put together. The gym has a light that turns... More

Good location, 15-20 min uphill walk from central station, busses available. Friendly and efficient service. They've managed a trendy look with simple materials. Our floor was covered in dust bunnies but everywhere else was clean.

Plus: - Great breakfast - Wooden floors in room - Clean - Decent size bathroom Negatives - Very noisy in the middle of the night screaming drunks outside the hotel. Strange that the windows are not better sound proofed - Small beds - beware! - Friendly personell, but slow response rates

As a Businesstraveller living nearby Oslo I don't often stay the night out, but this hotel tempts me to do it more often. I will tell you why; Fresh, Clean and Urban atmosphere. Comfortable soft beds gave a very good sleep. Good breakfast till 11 at Saturdays. Fresh baked warm bread was a big plus at our stay. Location is... More

Spent a great weekend in Oslo's Scandic Vulkan. Chose that hotel at random and according to a good Norwegian friend's advice. The only unfortunate thing is that hotel is not really easy to find if you are coming by car and without good navigation system. But I found Norwegians great and helpful people who tried to give a hint which... More

I had the corner room, and it felt like the cars were litterally driving through my bed. When I complained, I received at snotty answer. 3rd stay in the hotel, otherwise no complaints. Menu in restaurant a bit limited for a shorter stay, but meal of the day helps

Scandic Vulcan is a nice hotel not to far from the city center, right next to Mathallen. The rooms are fresh, the beds are really comfortable and everyone should absolutely try out the breakfast buffet.
